What is the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola?

The record-breaking PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola links Blackcomb and Whistler Mountains. A feat of engineering, the gondola boasts the longest unsupported lift span in the world (3.024 kilometres or 1.88 miles). It is also the highest lift of its kind with an elevation of 436 metres (1,427 ft).

What is the PEAK 2 PEAK Alpine Experience?

Sightseeing on the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is a must do while in Whistler. A PEAK 2 PEAK Alpine Experience ticket allows you to visit Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains in one day, on the way receiving a bird's eye view of the forest and spectacular mountains, valleys and glaciers. A special silver glass-bottom gondola provides another unique perspective of the forest.



The Alpine Experience is more than just spectacular views. Once on the mountain top there are other things to do: enjoy the PEAK 2 PEAK Viewing Gallery and the Samsung Alpine Theatre, casual and full service on-mountain dining and in summer, mountain-top BBQs and alpine hiking trails.

How do I access the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola?

The PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola runs between Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains with terminals approximately two-thirds up the mountains. Access to the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola is via the Whistler Village Gondola on Whistler Mountain or chairlifts on Blackcomb Mountain. Note that the access points change with the seasons - in winter access for sightseers is by the enclosed Whistler Village Gondola only.

How long does it take to ride the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola?

It is recommended that you give yourself at least 1.5 hours to ride the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola and return to the Village. If you are interesting in dining, taking lots of photographs, going on a hike or viewing the gallery while on the mountains, be sure to give yourself more time - you can easily spend an entire day up among the peaks! Several days are needed to explore all the hiking trails in summer - buy tickets in advance to get a second day for free.

Is there anywhere to eat on the mountains?

Yes - each mountain has several restaurants for casual and full service dining. View Whistler Mountain and Blackcomb Mountain dining options. Friday, Saturday and Sundays during summer the Mountain Top BBQ Series is a unique dining experience which can be added to the lift tickets.

What is the best time of year to ride the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola?

No matter what season you visit Whistler, the alpine is an incredible place to visit. Depending on the season you may see fresh and falling snow, alpine wildflowers and wildlife including bears, chipmunks, deer and marmots. You can also watch skiers, snowboarders and mountain bikers ride the mountains from the comfort of the cabin. Be sure to check the operating times and hours when planning your visit as these vary from season to season, and note the times when the gondola does close briefly for scheduled maintenance. In summer, hiking trails open in stages as the snow melts - opening dates may vary according to the snow pack and weather conditions.

What is the PEAK 2 PEAK Viewing Gallery?

Years were spent of planning and constructing the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola with its signature red gondolas. Learn more about the ground-breaking engineering behind the lift in the PEAK 2 PEAK Viewing Gallery inside the terminal on Whistler Mountain. A raised glassed-in walkway enables visitors to view the machinery working and tablets show videos exploring the construction of the lift and Whistler's ski history. The Viewing Gallery allows visitors to appreciate the true scale of the project, adding a whole new dimension to the Alpine Experience.

I have my tickets! What should I take with me?

As you are going from Whistler Village in the valley to the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola in the alpine, weather conditions and temperatures can change. Dress comfortably for the mountains - layers are recommended so you can adjust accordingly. If you plan to hike other gear is recommended such as comfortable sturdy shoes and water. Please note that in winter time to access the PEAK 2 PEAK Gondola you will need to walk through the snow - dress warmly and wear waterproof boots for comfort. There are restaurants, shops and washroom facilities on both mountains.
